George Soros: A Philanthropist Working For Equality and Justice

George Soros, an individual working for the civil rights has donated over US$12 billion which is the highest funding amount. He does not fund for each and everything, but he has an aim, and he is following his target, and for that, he is only funding different firms and people. Companies who are not just in the US but all over the world who are fighting for transparency, accountable government, freedom of expression, and different societies that are working hard to promote equality and justice.

This donation has normally focused on the people who are not able to get whey they deserve due to face discrimination. George has supported a different number of groups who are currently representing Roma people and few others as well who are pushing hard to the margins of conventional society, like sex workers, drug users, and LGBTI people.

George was once the victim of such problem that’s why he is emphasizing on this sector so that one else would suffer the same way he does. He was born in Hungary but then moved to the United States, and here he joined finance and investment sector to achieve what is needed so that he can proceed for his dream i.e. philanthropy work for the equality and justice. Even though he has money, and he can live his life in a luxury way, but he preferred to work for others.

To fulfill his dream, George in 1970, launched a hedge fund under the name of Soros Fund Management and afterward moved on to become an investor on which anyone can trust with their wealth. Soros created a network of projects, foundations and partners under the name the Open Society Foundations in moreover one hundred countries. Read his profile at Forbes.

The name of this foundation and the type of work it does directly reflects the thinking of George Soros. George mentioned the arguments of Karl in his first book “Open Society and Its Enemies.” In 1979, Soros decided that it is time to begin working for his actual aim of equality and justice and for that he began working for philanthropy by offering scholarships to black South Africans.

George expanded his philanthropy to the Africa, Asia, and the United States by supporting a huge array of efforts to design more transparent, accountable, and independent societies. Over the years, George has also supported a huge number of lawyers and paralegals to represent that individual who came in America but does not have legal right to stay there.

Soros sponsored those lawyers so that they can fight for such individuals and this mentioned as the biggest effort in history that has been done for the illegal immigrant so far. Soros once said that his success in the monetary markets had given him independence and that sovereignty allowed him to create his path for the world that is more open for all.

The Growth and Emergence of Fashion and Technology

There has been a dynamic change in both the fashion and the technological industries over the past years. The music industry has evolved from the 70s boom band that allowed an individual to play music on one side while the other could be used to record music from another or the playing cassette. In the 80s, the boom band introduced the movie concept. In the 90s, there was the introduction of Walkman, which allowed one to listen to music alone without distracting the people around them. It later evolved and saw the introduction of iPod, which was more personalized and small in size.

Fashion meets technology
According to Anouk Wipprecht, fashion is a playground where one can venture into deeper and deeper for greater rewards. The Dutch fashion designer came up with the self-painting dress and the drink-making dress. These are both fashion designs that have been influenced by the current technology.

The airbag for a cyclist that is worn around the neck was a design by Teresa Alstin and Anna Haupt. It is considered less cumbersome, and while protecting the cyclist, it maintains the cyclist’s clear view when it is closed, unlike helmets. The front line gloves that were designed by Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Canon allow firefighters to use informative gestures while they are at work.

There are attires which have been made from recycling materials like inner bicycle tubes that were recycled by SegraSegra to create jackets and t-shirts. There was also a gown created from recycled radiator copper by Emma Whiteside. Currently, Seleda Martin is trying to invent shoes that can charge the phone while the wearer is in motion. The stigma of wearing Google glasses was overcome recently when Dianne Von Furstenberg’s model wore them on the runway. That is another way where fashion came to rescue a dying technology.
